“Saskatchewan is home to a thriving technology sector, and the MIST program is another way the government can encourage its growth,” said Tina Beaudry-Mellor, Saskatchewan’s innovation minister.

Companies need to be based in Saskatchewan, have annual revenue under $500,000, and have no more than 30 employees.

If accepted, companies and their technologies will be offered to ministries, agencies and Crown corporations to identify partnerships.
